Dave’s folks celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. We are so grateful for their legacy of love as well for the amazing adventure they took us on in celebration.

Butchart Gardens’ Sunken Garden. It was once a quarry. This is what happened when the owner’s wife meddled in his business.

A dream is a wish your heart makes.

Character appearances were a daily occurrence. When you have to wait in line to talk to them it’s one thing. When Donald Duck gets on the elevator with you, it gets personal.

Not your typical day-at-sea aboard a cruise. Loved that we were in view of land the entire cruise.

Here’s looking at you mom!

When scenic beauty ceases to amaze, you bust out the princess dolls.

My beauties never cease to amaze me.

There was a Frozen party aboard the Disney cruise that night. Fitting.

She took 200+ photos with that camera then left it on the plane home. Not sure who was more sad.

Victoria, Vancouver and Alaska Days in My Life Travel

I love her expression. She’s looking at a Dall Sheep up on the mountain!

A little play with my LensBaby Sweet 35.

I love this art lens but it’s an acquired taste for many.

The Carcross Desert in the middle of the mountains. I could have stayed here all day. It was surreal.

There are some scenes that a camera just doesn’t do justice.

There’s gold in them thar’ hills!!!

Victoria, Vancouver and Alaska Days in My Life Travel

Dave was convinced he had panned a fleck of gold. Brenna dropped it right after this shot. Surely you see it.

Finger play with grandma on a bus in Juneau. I love that little hand.

The Meddenhall Glacier in Juneau. It extended out to the waterfall on the right in the 1970s! Yikes! Dave and his dad hiked five hours to touch it. The ladies took a bus and were very happy with this view.

This was taken at 9pm at night. The sun sets REALLY late in Alaska. Try convincing your kids they should really go to bed aboard a Disney cruise.
